Paleo Breakfast Quiche = Amazing!

This paleo and whole 30 compliant breakfast quiche is the bomb diggity and a meal prep staple in my house. One dish gets me through a 5 day work week. If you feel like sharing you probably want to double the recipe. I’m combining acorn squash, pasture raised eggs, uncured bacon and more savory ingredients to create this paleo breakfast quiche aka breakfast casserole. 

Paleo Breakfast Quiche with Bacon and Onions = AMAZING!

As per usual, the recipe started completely random. I had acorn squash, bacon, and eggs. I knew I wanted something for breakfast all week long. More protein with fewer carbs first thing in the morning personally works better for me. For me eating all carbs, doesn't keep me full and totally messes with my head.

The recipe does require a small bit of planning since you have to bake the acorn squash prior to making this recipe. I recommend doing that step early on and while it is roasting work on cleaning and preparing vegetables or whatever your meal prep looks like. Besides that, it is pretty easy. I make my breakfast for the week on Sunday's and eat the same thing almost every morning.
